    Tetra Pens

    A couple of weeks ago, I posted a message about Tetra Pens that have become my new favorite pen. They're sold by Berea, Beartooth, and Arizona Silhouettes and possibly others. They have a new woven stylus that's more accurate than the rubber ones. They are turned on an 8.2mm tube and use a Parker refill. They turn slightly larger than a Slimline and slightly smaller than a Cigar pen. Size can vary, as you'll see, based on material and how you prefer them to look. So here are some of mine, let me know what you think.

    The green one was grabbed by my wife immediately.

    Second is Thuya burl. This is mine. No finish on it so it won't lose the sweet smell

    Honduran Mahogany for a gift.

    Tulipwood for a gift.

    It feels great to sell a pen,
    It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

    Your work is very nice. They look like a version of the European which is the #1 pen I make, in numbers.

    Nice pens. I agree they are close to the European pens. I see by your avatar you fly or flew F- 16's, Thank you for your service. My son has been flying F-18 Superhornets for many years. He's almost at retirement.

    Steve, beautiful pens indeed. I just got an ipad this year. Made for my principal a stylus last year and repaired the rubber tip once. So are they also more durable than the rubber tip? I am going to check Ernie's site after typing this. Sounds like a good inbetween pen project for my students.
